Hi, Why you left South India like chennai

There also Navratri  will be  celebrated in a very grant manner.  In South India depending on their convenient they arrange steps like 9, 7, 5, 3   and keep dolls like Pilliyar, Lakshmi, saraswathi , sivan  etc. etc.  in that.    All the nine days they do pooja and invite all ladies including children  and give them bital leaves, kumkum and some sweets or some eatables.   They decorate the house nicely.    Daily they put  rangoli.  In south Indian temple the God will be dressed each day in a different manner like Saraswathi, Lakshmi ,Durga .   All nine days evening ladies wear new dress and go to their friends.  Ladies go to their mother's house and take blessing of their mothers and elderly people.  

I am sorry I missed this section of India. My bad. 

Sometime it happens.   We know that you did not miss purposely.  Please do not feel bad.  Have a nice Navratri.

1) How do you celebrate Navratri every year? By going to garba with our extended family!
2) Are you a bigger fan of Garba or Dandiya? Dandiya, but I love garba too.
3) Does your family do anything special during the 9 day festival? Like fasting or anything of the sort? We do the aarti everyday, but nothing else special, no meat during Navratri though.
4) Do you look forward to this festival every year? Yes! lol I love Navratri. It's the only festival we celebrate almost like it is in India (at least, in my part of the US)
5) What is the best part of Navratri for you? The clothes!!
6) Have you ever celebrated Navratri with any celebrities? Nope
7) Is there a difference when it coems to Navratri in India & Navratri in the US/Canada/other countries? I've never celebrated Navratri in India, but in the US I have. So I would say it's different. But the clothes, music, and dancing is pretty much the same.
8) Your favorite part of the festival? Did I say clothes? And dancing til my feet hurt. lol
9) Your favorite Navratri song if you have any? I love them all! 
10) What has been your most memorable Navratri & why? Last year, because all of the cousins, aunts, and uncles got together. It was almost like a family reunion! 

Happy Navratri!!

Navatri Poems

The temple priest has rung his bell.
A cloud of smoke from candles and lamps
Haloes the Goddess, glowing bright
This beat of drums both maddens and dulls.

The incense burns: so heady the musk,
Our senses flounder in the flood.
This endless chant of sacred words
Soon drugs our lips and stuns our minds.

The Goddess, always staring down:
Her painted pupils cut through smoke
And read the secret thoughts we think.
We somehow feel this within our hearts.

To Mother, we know, we bow and pray –
Her form not just this image of clay.
